Kanye West Cancels Vancouver Show on Second Night of Tour

Kanye West

Yeezus didn’t rise in Vancouver on Sunday. A day after Drake postponed his Philadelphia show, Kanye West pulled the plug on his Canadian gig.

With only hours to go until showtime at Rogers Arena, it was announced that the Chicago rapper would not be performing.

According to CTV, Canucks Sports & Entertainment sent out a news release at around 2:30 p.m. advising that “The Yeezus Tour” with Kendrick Lamar had been rescheduled until Oct. 31 due to “unforeseen circumstances.”

Fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment. “WHY IS THE CONCERT POSTPONED TO HALLOWEEN?! I WANTED CANDY. You’ve disappointed me @kanyewest,” tweeted one fan @hdeolxO.

Tickets for the canceled show will be honored for the rescheduled date of Halloween.

There was no further explanation on why the concert had been postponed, but there is speculation that one of the tour’s equipment trucks may have been stolen.

The Vancouver show was the second stop on “The Yeezus Tour,” which kicked off on Saturday in Seattle. It is set to resume on Tuesday in San Jose, Calif.

    @se7enfan, when the tickets dont sell, they come up with the most creative lies to cancel. they learned that from jayz and beyonce.

    @donna, This had nothing to do with ticket sales. Kanye has no problems moving tickets? his madison square garden shows are BOTH sold out, you don’t just sell out MSG.

    @se7enfan, It has nothing to do with him being a rapper, the people who transport his equipment are having some sort of labor dispute, that is the reason why one of the trucks did not make it to the seattle concert and it started 2 hours late, it is a labor dispute with the truckers moving his equipment. I prefer they cancel than for me to get a half of show, or a very late show.

    @Nikki, He could have done it without the props. He had fans waiting there and he told them once they all got there. He obvs knew from before but didn’t bother telling them.

    How does an entire truck, loaded with major staging/lighting equipment, get “stolen” between two stops of a previously mapped out tour?

    There are entire crews of people whose sole job is to ensure the safety and proper setup of this stuff.

    Something isn’t right here.

    @EL, The truck was not stolen, it just never made it due to the labor dispute that was going on with the company.

    The hate on this site is so lame. Firstly, the show is sold out. I know because by the time I got tickets (5 mins after they went on sale) there were only nosebleeds left. Secondly, I’m glad they postponed and didn’t do a show without the sets. Yes, some people are pissed cause they drove/even flew in for the show, but I’m sure that’s a very small percentage.

    @Croqque, that’s what I was going to say lol People act like Kanye cant sell anymore. I wonder why? Because he just went gold with Yeezus? IDK man but these people are over the top. And what does Drake have to due with kanye west? lol Anyways I hope everything goes well and hope nothing hours wrong when he comes to LA on friday! I can’t wait :)
